In China, the moon shines on four baby girls, fast asleep in an orphanage. Far away in North America, the sun rises over four homes as the people who live there get ready to start a long, exciting journey. This story of people who travel to China to be united with their daughters describes the adoption process step by step and the anxiety, suspense and delight of becoming a family.
